Hector Dobbs

-SG- Back in May '22 we had a brief posting about Hector Dobbs and his 1925 win in the Amateur.  Included were a few words about his 1926 Amateur TT Norton - which seems to have been quite special - and I have recently managed to obtain a copy of a photo of it in action, before Dobbs came to grief in the poor weather.  This is attached - pity it was not taken from the other side - it would have been nice to know if it was a dry-sump machine!
